Remember I posted forever ago about those little Creative Cafe magnets that were so cute? Well, I used that idea and came up with this instead:

I made two and am using them on the bottom of two of my pennants for my banner I'm making for a baby shower. I just traced a circle on the back of the red and white felt and cut it out with my pinking shears. Then I cut out another piece of black felt with regular scissors. I took red and white gingham from the last Scripts Kit and cut it into skinny strips and gathered the strip up into a flower of sorts. Then topped it off with a button and stitched the whole thing together. I felt like they were a bit heavy for the paper and regular adhesive, so I stapled them on to make sure they don't fall off.

The baby's room is going to be all Raggedy Ann with vintage touches - so I thought the gingham was perfect. The baby shower is going to have the same theme - so the banner can hang up on the wall for the shower and then be moved to the baby's room after. I'm also working on a diaper cake this weekend to match and will post it when I'm done - I'm using the same felt flowers on it - all inspired by this post!!
